The Ethereum Community is Already Anticipating the Dencun Upgrade

Scheduled for March 15, 2024, Dencun refers to the second phase of Ethereum’s transition to PoS. This upgrade will bring the “proto-danksharding” to the blockchain.

The Dencun upgrade is eagerly awaited by the Ethereum community. It will not only improve user experience but also pave the way for new possibilities. It will also strengthen Ethereum’s position as a leader in the crypto market.

ETH Price: The Bullish Trend is Confirmed

The price of Ethereum has jumped by 28% since the beginning of February, reaching $2,935 at the time of writing this article. This is the highest level since November 2021, when ETH reached its all-time high of $4,800.

Several market indicators confirm this bullish trend. Notably, the open interest on Ethereum futures contracts. It has reached $10.6 billion, the highest level since July 2022. Transaction volume also exceeded $130 billion in January following the approval of Bitcoin ETFs in the United States.

Despite its impressive performance, Ethereum still has room to grow. The Dencun upgrade is just one step towards Ethereum 2.0’s final vision, expected to be completed by 2025. Other improvements are planned, such as the integration of Layer 2 (L2) scaling networks, which move some transactions off the main blockchain, making them faster and cheaper.

In any case, Ethereum is well on its way to continue dominating the crypto market in 2024. According to some analysts, it might even surpass Bitcoin. Stay tuned…
